There are two types of people in the world: those who love Christmas, and those who don’t.

Each year, we’re working to build momentum and worship culture inside our services. We want people to have the chance to experience God and understand the value of worshiping our Heavenly Father. For eleven months, we pine over this process. Then, around the month of December, we have to abort because it’s Christmas time. If you’re like me, you LOVE Christmas – probably not as much as THIS GUY – but still love it and you want to sing Christmas songs.

Well, Jarrod, our worship leader, and probably one of the best worship leaders in the world, is a little more scrooge than Santa. He wishes we would never sing Christmas songs again…ever. With that thought in mind, we went into the lab to dream up what it could look like to make both sides happy. We came up with these mash-ups that worked GREAT in our services last year.  They’ve allowed us to celebrate the season without sacrificing the momentum and culture of worship.

*Artistic disclaimer – these are work tapes we’ve created for our bands to practice with. Feel free to use these songs if it might help your service. Also, we’ve added an original worship song to this list that has been working well for us.

Merry Christmas!

PS. If you would like charts to use these songs in your Christmas planning feel free to email: Ali
